Someone who hunts vampires. May be a Hunter of His Own Kind vampire hunting seems to be a common profession for Dhampyr and the Friendly Neighborhood Vampire who feels compelled to protect humans from his less charitable kin. If not all vampires are evil , he may end up hunting every last one down anyway , due to a misplaced sense of justice or the loss of a loved one to a vampire attack. And often sublimated self-loathing. Sometimes his single-minded zeal for the hunt ends up making him just as bad as or even worse than the fiends he hunts. See Hunter of Monsters for a hunter whose chosen quarry extends to other supernatural creatures beyond the blood-sucking variety.

Vampire Hunter: Il Cacciatore di Vampiri
Young Abraham Lincoln sees his mother die when he is just a boy. He soon discovers that a vampire is responsible. Swearing vengeance , Lincoln goes on to moonlight as a vampire hunter with the help of ethical vampire Henry Sturges.

Abraham Lincoln vs. It stars Bill Oberst, Jr. The sole survivor, who is in the process of turning into a zombie, describes how his squad was decimated by undead Union and Confederate soldiers who "ate their flesh". Knowing straightaway that zombies are the cause, Abe decides to lead a crack squad of Secret Service men to investigate the fort and take it back from the undead menace. The movie, despite being a particularly bad offender of Anachronism Stew and a blatant ripoff of the Seth Grahame-Smithe book and movie, is surprisingly not that bad as far as movies from The Asylum go. This is likely due to the influence of director Richard Schenkman, best known for previously making the sci-fi picture The Man from Earth , as well as the performance of Bill Oberst Jr.
That guy who won the The American Civil War , proclaimed the slaves free, delivered the Gettysburg Address, and was born in a log cabin which he built with his own two hands. Old joke. He immediately followed James Buchanan and preceded Andrew Johnson. He's also known for wearing a top hat and being impressively tall tied with Lyndon Johnson for tallest president ever, at 6'4". When he took direct control of the Union army for a brief time, he showed himself to be a talented military strategist as well.
